I have a GE frig model GSS22WGPA WW. I opened the freezer back panel and removed the frozen ice on the coils. I am trying to order the heater coil. The frig has one heater but not sure if it's the 9 inch or 12 inch?

2 Questions... First, I had been having issues with the refrigerator not cooling and the freezer cooling just fine. After pulling the rear panel, I found the evaporator coils totally covered in ice. I am assuming that the heater is faulty. Is this a correct assumption? Secondly, I have had a non functioning ice maker since last summer when we were without power after severe storms whereas I had the unit connected to my 6500 watt generator and it (generator) had a surge and the maker is no longer working. I have looked at the mother board and notice one of the round electronic gadgets has the end blown out of it. I am assuming that I also need a mother board ??

Hey Guys, I have a GE model TFX26KRDAWW Fridge/freezer, and just bought a Wr51x10055. After it was installed EVERYTHING was GREAT, but now I'm having the same trouble, it's only been about two weeks. My QUESTION is what else could be wrong, could it be the new heater? (the old heater was bad also) Could it be the sensor??? Or something else?? I don't want to replace the entire fridge. Once I replaced the heater, I changed all my settings back to normal, But not I have to set them to the coldest just to get the compressor to kick on again. Help I'm confused! Thanks, you guys STILL rock!

Freezer evaporator keeps building with ice not allowing the refrigerator to cool. I've replaced the defrost sensor twice. Everything works fine for about 2 months then the same thing happens. Could it be the heater?

I Have a GE TFX30PP performance profile and there is a defrost build up behind the freezer panel. I had someone look at it but they told me it was a "defrost sensor" that was causing build up and not keeping fridge part cool. He was charging me way too much and wanted to know what "sensor" he was talking about... Was it the deforest heater and bracket assembly or the defrost thermostat or both? Need help and thanks a lot!

The heater assembly AP3884317 is burned out. Also the male connectors that attach to it are fried also. I need the harness assembly for the heater. Do you have that available?. I've seen heater assemblies on other heaters that include the harness but cannot find the harness assembly for this particular part. Thanks, Lee
